Party Day

Birthday Brunch @ Brit's

Sunday was party day. I started off with a beautiful brunch at Brit's house in Franklin Hills to celebrate her birthday. Brit's friend, Denise catered the brunch...it was totally divine! Her friend, Debra made a beautiful and delicious birthday cake. There were presents, food, laughter, wonderful people and the rain even stopped for a bit. It was a fun party! There are more photos here.

While Brit's party was still goin' on, I had to zoom over to Atwater for a MadHatter's Tea Party at Claire's and Tom's house.
This was an interesting party. Of course, there was tea, cake, cookies, champagne and caviar. We all wore hats. Even though it's winter, I wore my flowered bucket hat. It was well-received.
The hat above, owned by Claire, is made from plastic "straw." The flowers on top are made from recycled plastic bags! I love this hat!
During the party, we all switched around hats. I must say, it was quite a photo opportunity. My favorite hat of the day was this felted hat, part of Tom's and Claire's hat collection, modeled by Larry:

All in all, it was a fun, but exhausting day! How was your weekend?

Please pass along my birthday wishes to Brit!

My weekend was spent in home improvement hell. (We're trying to find roman shades for our office and bedroom.) Yours looks like it was MUCH more fun!

Do you have a pattern for the crown hat? I have a sister that would love it. She is currently in Africa with the state department. My email address is: davisvalorie@yahoo.com.
Love the hats!
